Beautiful bags from Fashion Crochet
Today's projects from Fashion Crochet are all bonnie bags designed by Zoe Clements. Zoe is the editor of Yarnwise magazine and founder of Love Crochet website. If you haven't checked out her website, you should, it is full of gorgeous patterns available to buy.
For these pieces, we had the inspiration of a Stella Macartney bag, a Gerard Darel bobbled number and a Chanel crocheted shopper. Zoe created these original pieces from the initial inspiration.
I was going to say which is my favourite, but I couldn't decide. I like the practical beach style of the 'straw' bag inspired by Chanel, which you could make even more embellished with tonnes of the flowers sewn on. The bobbled bag uses a stunning subtle metallic yarn and the texture is delectable, while the Macartney inspired bag is an every day bag, with unusual chain detailing and again an option for all out crazy embellishment, you could use the flower motifs as a fringe for an on trend accessory.
